... go to the medieval studies class on instruments and than medieval
conference meeting but stayed in bed most of the day. I now couldn’t breathe
and hadn’t slept in a couple of days because I was violently coughing all
night. Doctor just said I had a chest infection, no temperature or anything so
he gave me some medicine and sent me on my way. Essentially the crazy weather
here got me sick and my body couldn’t ...
... border with flowers and then we cut out capitol letters to spell out bake donate. Then, since we were too productive, spent the rest of the day rewatching the show Gargoyles. We decided since we have to both bust out all our semester papers THIS month we would work hard and then reward ourselves with Gargoyles.
End of another week! Love that the going joke here is “That’s going on the blog!”
Happy March to everyone! Lets hope for nice spring ...
... about ART!!!!!!!!! So excited and pumped for class already! Then the next week going to talk about Mists of Avalon, I am 60% through it. Getting to the point where I just want to smash my ipad in anger because Guinevere is probably the worst character I have ever had to read about. Like 80% of my anger is at Guinevere. Sometimes I think “This book isn’t bad, why do I think it is” and then she shows up for a good chunk of the book and is just ...
... same text (even though two completely different approaches to the text). We had both been working on this since last semester so I was completely devastated that I would have to start from square one. But thankfully I met with the professor and got to keep my topic after discussing that we were in fact doing two different approaches to the text.
The rest of the week went rather well and I shall try to currently hold onto the positive aspects of my ...
... more I think about it the more I loved it. All the actors, except Othello, played stringed instruments throughout the play. The music was usually a variation of the same tune but it really added to the play and I think it would feel wrong to see Othello without the music now!
Weekend has been a mixture of work and fun, spent most of the day working on that dissertation outline and rereading texts. But Friday night had ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Afon Gwyn Country House Betws-y-Coed
A well positioned, beautifully appointed guest house truly deserving of all the praise in previous reviews. We were looking for something special for a Valentine's break - we were not disappointed. Tim had kindly booked a table at a local restaurant - Ty Gwyn - we enjoyed a fine five course meal for just £30 each, including half a bottle of decent cava.
We stayed for two nights at Afon Gwyn on the first weekend in February. I booked the hotel through the link on the B&B's website (which does not have real-time availability - so you leave your details and the hotel or B&B get back to you later) and Tim, the owner, called me shortly afterwards to confirm the booking. He also asked me if we wanted him to make any restaurant reservations and provided me with plenty of information about the B&B and it's location.
We stayed one night at the Afon Gwyn Country House B&B in the Rupert Suite. Pre-arrival we spoke to the Tim the owner a couple of times and he was pleasant and accommodating (including when we had to change our arrival day).
We have just returned from 3 nights staying at the incredibly lovely Afon Gwyn Country House. We were hoping that the previous reviews were accurate, and to our relief they certainly were!
We decided to pay a little extra for this place we found on the web because it looked so nice and we thought that if it rained all week (we're talking Wales in September) we'd have somewhere comfortable to be. It was WELL worth it. It felt more like staying in a 4-star hotel than a B&B but it still had a warm and friendly B&B atmosphere. We stayed in the Sorrel Suite which was really big with a lovely bathroom. The room and public areas were lovingly furnished - all the soft furnishings had been handmade by the family. Very well equipped too. We were a little worried when we arrived because there were cream carpets everywhere (be prepared to take your shoes off before you go up the cream-carpeted stairs) but it still looked immaculate even after we'd left! I do hope they can keep it this way. Breakfast was delicious and generous and served with a good dollop of humorous chat and quiz questions. Everything was very stylish and Tim and Di were admirably flexible too.
First class place to stay
Even prior to us arriving Tim and Di had booked a restaurant and odered a taxis for us so we knew we had found a caring, attentive place to stay. That level of attention to detail is evident throughout the house which was very tastefully decorated. All suits are on suite, we stayed in the Alice suite which is size of a football field, with bed to match!!!
Breakfast was hearty and full of flavour, nothing was too much trouble, very high recommended for that special weekend away.
best B&B I've stayed in. Having explored most of the English countryside and stayed in typical B&B accommodation, this one rates top of my list. The house was beautiful, very clean, great breakfast and the most friendly helpful owners you could wish to meet. I enquired whether they took permanent lodgers rather than guests as I could have stayed indefinately.......
The area itself breathtakingly beautiful. The walks are fantastic, the locals friendly and the gentle trickle of water that can be heard is so calming, I would have fallen asleep had I sat down for too long.
The best place to stay if you are visiting North Wates.
Enjoy, I did !!!!!!!!
Afon Gwyn is a place where the guests are made to feel at home, because of the attentive, professional and loving way that Di and Tim Pederby operate the house. Nothing is too much trouble for them; you arrive a guest and leave feeling like an old friend. Even the gorgeous Holly the Dog will offer the paw of welcome!
This is a 5* luxury B&B in North Wales. I never thought these exsisted but they do. This place is very well presented, the rooms are cleverly decorated and styled, the hosts are super friendly. What a fantastic place and completely recommended to anyone wanting to try a B&B for a change. I'm converted.
